On 2/10/2019 the first Kids Are Alright show went off like a rocket at Goosetown Tavern. If you missed it be sure and check out some pics and videos below of on our page. The talent from these bands just blew me away. This was also my first introduction to Denver based hardcore punks, Tuck Knee. We reviewed Almataha’s, “Kill The Leaders” back on 4/5/2018. Reviews for AFD and Neutral Thought will be coming in the future.
Why did I choose to write about Tuck Knee today? As soon as they stepped on stage. I felt thrown back into the 80’s hardcore scene. A powerful time in punk rock, as the American punk subculture was telling the establishment to fuck off. I felt a strong sense of pride throughout their set. I kept thinking, “Damn Denver, you’re one lucky city!” So today I ran over to their bandcamp and picked up their singles here, https://tuckkneeband.bandcamp.com/.
By the way all of their songs are currently “Name Your Own Price”, but be sure to drop at least $1 per song, so they can record more music! Keep in mind some of these videos taken are not great as the pit was pretty insane. Plus it was hard to film when I just wanted to mosh.
So let’s check out some songs!
They Way I Feel – I love the riffs, drums , and Ashmore’s vocals on this one!
Habit – This song is 1:17 seconds long, its angry, hardcore at its finest!
P.S.A – The message of this song. Don’t be an ass in the pit!
Can’t Stand For It – Per Bandcamp, “not the final version of this track full EP will be recorder in studio. Feb 2019”. I cannot wait to hear the final if this is the first!
Let me wrap this up. With 4 songs released I cannot wait to get my ear holes on some new material. I cannot wait to see what the future holds for this band.
